Ryan Harris

Whether it’s inspiring future engineers or helping his employer to improve efficiency and diagnose and fix faults, Ryan Harris has proved to be an “impressive” apprentice.

Ryan, 21, from Hawthorn, Pontypridd, is a process development technician improver based at global precision engineering company Renishaw’s Miskin site, near Pontyclun.

During his apprenticeship, Ryan has saved the company thousands of pounds, modifying machines to save energy and improving the ordering and storing processes for low volume production.

Having achieved a series of engineering qualifications through Coleg y Cymoedd, including an Apprenticeship in Installation and Commissioning, Ryan is now working towards a Pearson Mechanical HNC delivered by Bridgend College.

His ambition is to obtain a degree to become a process development engineer.
